Are you taking your curb appeal for granted? Have you become blind to the way your home looks from the outside?
You spend time fixing up your home’s interior—a coat of paint, new furniture, maybe updated appliances—but what about the exterior? Are you doing more than just keeping up with the landscaping?
A new front door can add a fresh, updated look to your home, as well as provide greater energy efficiency, which translates into savings. A door is more than a means of entering your home. It makes a statement, just like every other detail you’ve added, altered, or enhanced.
Is it time to replace your front door?
Walk out to the curb and take a look. Does the front door add curb appeal? Or is it looking a bit tired and weathered? You could just add a coat of paint (maybe a more vibrant color), but your front door might need a replacement. Here are some telltale signs:
- The door shows signs of warping, rust, or rotting.
- There are cracks along the edges or in the panels.
- The insulation isn’t sufficient. When you touch the door from the inside of the house, you can feel the outside temperature.
- The door doesn’t close smoothly or tightly, which means it’s possibly the source of a draft.
A solid fiberglass door offers four times the energy efficiency of a wooden door, and resists rotting, rusts, and dents. That doesn’t mean you have to forego the look of natural wood. Companies like ProVia design and manufacture front entry doors in a broad range of styles with high definition woodgrain fiberglass finish. The Signet line is available in Cherry, Mahogany, Oak, and Knotty Alder Series, and each one offers a choice of 7 different stain finishes.
